A Thought for the Day..and a Thank You.

A dear friend offered me some support and encouragement this morning through a statement she says comes from a Conan O’Brien commencement speech on YouTube.  I need to watch the whole thing, but the bit she offered me is this: “There are few things more liberating in this life than having your worst fear realized.” 

Thank you, friend.  That was exactly what I needed to hear.

  1. YES!!!!I learned this living through a hurricane. We lost it all, rebuilt, and then eventually had to close our businesses.It IS liberating to see the bottom and know that you can come back to the top with the help of the God who never leaves.

  2. Kristen, I wouldn't compare my situation to your living through a hurricane, but I absolutely agree with you. I admire you for rebuilding and hope to have the opportunity to hear you speak on the subject at some point!

  3. Amen! Because guess what…you realize in those moments that you are a survivor. That you can endure. That one of your greatest strengths is resilience. And that sometimes we shine brightest coming from a dark place. Thinking of you and sending you encouraging, hopeful thoughts!
